wow Gold Making: Noblegarden

2 posts in this topic

16604-gold-making-noblegarden.jpg

The seasonal Easter event only lasts for one week, and it's a great chance to make some gold whether you enjoy farming or flipping!  Learn how to maximise your earning potential both during and after Noblegarden.

Introduction


The intention of this guide is to help you earn gold both during and after the event.  If you would like a comprehensive guide on the event itself and the associated items and achievements then check out our full guide HERE.

 

Important things to note:

 

The following items are trade-able:

There are other items that can be purchased from the vendor that are Bind on Pickup so do not make the mistake of purchasing things such as inv_misc_herb_rainpoppy.jpgMystical Spring Bouquet (a non trade-able non combat pet) to resell!

As with many events players generally pay for items that with help them towards an achievement or give them some form of vanity reward (such as a mount or companion pet).

Clothing


The clothing items are required for the two achievements
 
inv_shirt_08.jpgSunday's Finest
inv_chest_cloth_04.jpgDressed for the Occasion.

As outlined in our guide you must LOOT these items from the eggs themselves to gain the achievement.  This means there is little resale value.  However there will always be players that mis-read the achievement and feel they can complete it just through purchasing the item from the auction house.  
For this reason there is a small opportunity to make some gold perhaps in the first few days of the event as new players rush to try and complete the achievements. 
Personally I don't resell many of these items.  The return is fairly low unless you get lucky and have the only items on your auction house.

Do not waste any of your achievement_noblegarden_chocolate_egg.jpNoblegarden Chocolate purchasing these items.  

Companion pets



inv_gauntlets_02.jpgSpring Rabbit's Foot has a small chance (around 0.5%) to be contained in a inv_egg_06.jpgBrightly Colored Egg.

They can also be purchased at the vendor for 100 achievement_noblegarden_chocolate_egg.jpNoblegarden Chocolate.  Just like the clothing items, I recommend that you do not spend any of your chocolate eggs on the pet itself.

Throughout the event the price will drop dramatically and I have seen them trade for as little as 1g in previous years.
If you still have any available from previous events, or you are lucky to loot one within the first few days then you may see a decent return from the auction house if you post them early but this will depend on your server.

Sadly they are far too common and offer very little as a regular battle pet / companion pet that isn't widely available already (it has the same ability set as other rabbits).

As with any pet, there is improved opportunity for gold if you manage to upgrade the pet to rare quality and level it to 25. Prices generally range from 1k to 6k depending on your region and server.

Remember that inv_misc_herb_rainpoppy.jpgMystical Spring Bouquet is NOT trade-able.

The Swift Springstrider


Like most other seasonal events the mounts included in them can be very lucrative. For Noblegarden in particular the ability_hunter_pet_tallstrider.jpgSwift Springstrider is your best chance at making gold from the event.

There are three ways to obtain a mount:

As the event only lasts a week you may find it difficult to farm 500 chocolate eggs if your play time is limited in any way.

Ensure you are farming efficiently and where possible:

  • Use an inv_misc_easterbasket.jpgEgg Basket and set your environmental detail to low as mentioned in our guide.
  • Farming at off peak hours and in less common zones such as Mulgore / Exodar may reduce competition.
  • Be realistic with your farming time.  As there are few items to purchase other than the mount you do not want to finish the event on 750 eggs for example.  If you don't think you will gather enough to gain your next 500 and your next mount then it is better to stop and do something entirely different with your game time.

Selling your mounts for maximum profit can be tricky. Even if you have no intention of purchasing mounts to resell, i recommend that you read the section below. It may give you insight into timing your own sales. Remember it is relatively easy to sell them during the event, so if you are after a "quick" sale then ensure you do it during the week or not long after. Although you have a small chance to drop a mount from the eggs themselves do not farm with the intention of receiving one. Consider it a "bonus" if you do obtain one this way.

Buying/Flipping mounts
Buying items to resell (also known as flipping) can be an easy way to obtain a profit and can be done from the comfort of your own auction house. I will be producing a guide on Flipping in the near future but here are a few things to consider in the mean time:

  • It requires a gold investment that can sometimes be high risk
  • It may take a long time to sell so patience is needed
  • Seasonal items are commonly flipped so high competition is to be expected

As with all time sensitive events there is generally a cycle of how items are posted on the auction house. Timing your purchase correctly will yield in a greater profit, or help improve your chances of a resale. Although I cannot predict your own personal servers numbers, here is a general outline of how seasonal markets tend to work. (Note: This is meant in general terms and will depend on your realm population and various other factors such as how many players are both farming or flipping).

  • Players who have items from previous events or gain an item early tend to set a high price
  • This price will fluctuate over the first few days
  • Prices generally normalize towards the middle of the event
  • As the event comes to an end prices are generally at their lowest 
  • Close to the event ending and just after the event finishes players may try and purchase high volumes

One important thing to note. As there is very little to do in game right now and even less to spend your gold on, a large number of players may be willing to farm for mounts or are trying their hand at flipping certain items (this may even be you!). You are never sure of the true number of items on your server.  Invest at your own risk!

I will try and explain through a quick example. Lets assume there are 10 mounts in total on your auction house ranging from 18k-24k. Player A decides to buy all of them out in the hope of relisting them and monopolizing the market (thinking they have bought them all). Player A relists one or two mounts at 40k just to find Players B, C and D have another 15 mounts each waiting to resell and push the price back down to ~20k.

I am not discounting this method entirely, just be aware you will need large quantities of gold and a lot of patience if you truly wish to monopolize the market. When and at what price you wish to sell your mounts will depend on your mentality and possibly the amount of gold you currently have.  Do you like high turnover or prefer to wait for maximum profit?  Are you just looking for a quick sale to get some gold towards your next wow_token01.jpgWoW Token?

Again I cannot predict your own gold needs and wants so the decision is ultimately yours.
It is entirely feasible to buy and resell a large volume of mounts during the event itself. You may even wish to hold your entire stock until Legion is released.  There are potentially thousands of returning / new players who will be playing during Legion and with it comes a new mount collecting achievement. Some players (myself included) are doing just that, and with the Warcraft movie also being released soon there are possibly more new players coming to the game (although their desire for a seasonal strider mount is debatable).

Experience can play a big part in how you flip items, so if you are unsure, play it safe. Don't buy too many items and just be patient!

Remember

  • Never over-invest
  • Do not assume you have a monopoly just because you buyout the entire auction house
  • Try and get a feel for how prices are changing
  • Patience will yield the greater profit

I hope you enjoyed this guide to gold making for Noblegarden.  I plan on releasing similar guides for all of the seasonal events, and they will be updated yearly to include any new items or new gold making opportunities. As always if you have any successes then please feel free to share below!

Just a quick update:

 

There are no new items to trade for 2016.

 

It took me just over an hour of fairly intensive farming to get my 500 eggs. I am the first on my server with the mount so I have managed to set a hopefully high price.

 

Let me know if you get lucky!

      We get specific details and numbers for the upcoming trinket changes, as well as an explanation and specifics on the Crusade nerf, both coming tomorrow with the reset
      Still no exact stats for Convergence of Fates, but we get an idea of how it will end up in relation to specific specs and talents.
      Lore (source)
      In general, we’ve found that our tuning on trinkets which relied on a direct damage or healing effect (as opposed to their raw stats) have come up a bit short this expansion. To help address that, we’re making the following changes:
      Claw of the Crystalline Scorpid: Damage increased by 30%. Arcanogolem Digit: Damage increased by 30%. Entwined Elemental Foci: The amount of Critical Strike, Mastery, and Haste granted by this item’s proc has been increased by 5%. Might of Krosus: Base damage reduced by 25%, but is now always a critical strike. The tooltip for Might of Krosus will display the amount of damage that will result from the critical hit, not the base damage. Also fixed a bug where the cooldown was incorrectly being reduced if Might of Krosus damaged at least 3 targets. Draught of Souls: The Use effect of this trinket now respects the global cooldown. The damage of this trinket is now reduced by 30% for Unholy Death Knights (was reduced by 40%). Designer Notes: Since Draught of Souls deals Shadow Damage, it’s increased by Unholy’s Mastery, which means we needed to reduce its base damage to keep its overall value similar to other classes. It’s currently a little too low, however, so we’re increasing the damage it deals for Unholy. Icon of Rot: Damage increased by 40%. Pharamere's Forbidden Grimoire: Damage increased by 85%. Fury of the Burning Sky: Damage increased by 40%. Star Gate: Damage increased by 30%. Aluriel's Mirror: Healing-over-time amount increased by 140%. Detonation effect reduced by 35%. Designer Notes: Aluriel’s Mirror’s detonation effect is strong when it activates, but hard to rely on. We’re increasing the heal-over-time effect significantly to improve the up-front value of this trinket, and reducing the detonation effect slightly to compensate. Perfectly Preserved Cake: Absorb amount increased by 140%. Etraeus' Celestial Map: The amount of Critical Strike, Mastery, and Haste granted by this item’s proc has been increased by 5%.
      As for Convergence of Fates, we’re spending a little extra time to make sure our changes here are as comprehensive as possible, so we don’t have final numbers yet. However, we can share our overall plan for the changes we intend to make. We intend to reduce its base effectiveness (before talents) for Windwalkers, and increase its base effectiveness for Retribution Paladins and Frost and Unholy Death Knights. Separately, we plan to adjust its effectiveness individually for the following talents:
      Serenity (Windwalker) Crusade (Retribution Paladin) Incarnation: King of the Jungle (Feral Druid) Hungering Rune Weapon (Frost Death Knight) Dark Arbiter (Unholy Death Knight)
      We’re planning to make these changes with the next weekly restarts, alongside the release of Mythic Nighthold. Overall, this should make the trinkets in Nighthold more competitive with other trinkets available elsewhere in the expansion.

      And the Crusade nerf explanation:
      Sigma (source)
      We are definitely keenly aware that people feel better when we fix a problem by buffing something, rather than fixing it by nerfing something. If you look across classes and talent rows in 7.1.5, you'll see the great majority of balance issues were addressed by buffing underperforming talents. There are a few factors that go into this decision though, and it generally has to be handled on a case-by-case basis.
      One issue when balancing a lopsided talent row is whether we want the overall power of the spec to go slightly up or slightly down in the process. In the case of Retribution during our tuning adjustments for the opening of Nighthold, we intended to slightly nerf the topend performance of the spec (essentially, the performance of players stacking trinkets/relics/legendaries that all build around Crusade). I know there's no easy way to deliver that message, but hopefully it's at least worth clarifying that it's not some accident of how we chose to balance the L100 row. Players say "why couldn't we buff Divine Purpose instead of nerfing Crusade", for the very understandable reason that the former wouldn't have resulted in a slight DPS nerf. But we were conscious of the slight DPS nerf when we decided to do it this way.
      Another factor is that there are sometimes limits on how powerful we want an individual talent to be, regardless of balance within the row. Divine Purpose and Crusade are both very strong talents, that have a significant impact on the rotation and playstyle of the spec (and as mentioned, on gear/talent/relic/etc. decisions), even at their current strength. Balancing Retribution L100 at an even higher point would start causing more issues--Divine Purpose would allow strings of multiple free finishers very often, Crusade would continue to represent a majority of the spec's damage within a cooldown, and Holy Wrath would have to get even more bursty to try to compete with the other two. Sometimes we have to be careful about addressing all balance problems by buffing two talents up to match the highest one, because it can lead to a lot of power creep on the importance of a single talent to an entire DPS rotation.

      World Quests have had their rewards updated, demons are invading various parts of the Broken Shore and reputations with Legion factions beyond Exalted yield additional rewards.
      World Quests
      Had their rewards bumped up to item level 860+.

      Demon Assaults
      On PTRs, zones are periodically under attack and they switch every 3 hours, but it may be only to speed up testing. Once you zone in, you'll auto-accept the following quests if the zone you enter is under attack, for example Assault on Val'sharah. You have to complete 6 invasions in that area. Assaults are basically the same as World Quests. When a zone is invaded, no World Quests are available.
      An invasion is indicated by a big logo on the world map.

      Invasion quests also have different icons than regular World Quests.

      Demons are all over the place. You will be closing portals, killing various enemies including commanders.

      Flight Master Mount Change
      The flying mount used for transport across the Broken Shore has changed.


      Reputation Paragon
      If you've reached Exalted with Legion factions, every 20,000 additional reputation you'll get will award additional caches. We don't know if the caches have an increased chance to give you a Legendary or notable item upgrades, but let's hope the rewards are better, because you don't collect 20,000 reputation in the blink of an eye and getting an item level 835 that ends as a Chaos Crystal is all but rewarding. It's also worth noting that saving all reputation items for 7.2 isn't a bad idea as they will come in handy. Obtaining 10 caches rewards the Paragon of the Broken Isles achievement.

      The first micro-holiday, Call of the Scarab, brings with it a gold-making opportunity. Selling meat can be profitable.
      Warlord Gorchuk and Master Sergeant Fizzlebolt are Meat vendors and you can find them near the Scarab Gong in Silithus for the duration of the event. They allow the turn-in of 20 pieces of various meat for 20 Alliance Qiraji Commendations // 20 Horde Qiraji Commendations per turn-in for your faction.
      The following meat can be farmed and resold on the Auction House.
